Why would he face a conflict resolution process?

There is no reason I can see to conflict with a transitional package,
after all.

However, for git in squeeze, it’s a moot point.  The 'transitional'
archive section and front-end support for it [1] would be needed, or
else the newly installed git package will be marked as automatically
installed and promptly removed again.

Thanks for the comments.
